Fallout 76 just got a new quest called The Lowe Down, which involves a fairly long search for the lost brother of Shelly Van Lowe. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to beat the quest and what you can do with the Recall Keycard Circuit Board being sold by some vendors.
Fallout 76 The Lowe Down Walkthrough
You can start the Lowe Down quest two different ways. The first and easiest method is active through 9 a.m. EDT May 7. Simply go to the Atom Shop and pick up the free Sheepsquatch Ate My Brother poster from the featured section. If you missed that date, posters can be found all around Lewisburg and the Van Lowe Taxidermy.
Once you have the poster, place it in your CAMP to get the Lying Lowe quest. You’ll find it in the Wall Decor menu.
Directed by the quest, enter Van Lowe Taxidermy. Grab the Holotape from the location shown below. While the tape is playing, you can also find two optional clues behind the glass case directly across from the terminal. They’re called Strange Bone and Knick-Knack Paddywhack.
Go upstairs and you’ll find another optional clue in the kitchen area called “Where is It.”
If you keep going upstairs, you’ll eventually come to Calvin’s office. At this point your quest will update and prompt you to search the office terminal for clues. Do so, and select the option for “Research Security Code [Required.]” You’ll then be prompted to find Calvin’s Security Code.
To get the code, go all the way downstairs to the basement. Once you get there, if you’ve picked up the Strange Bone, go to the Mounted Wolf Head to place it. This opens a panel that reveals a piece of paper with Calvin’s Security Code on it. Go back up to the office terminal and select “Research Security Code” again. This time, select “Sheepsquatch, 2070-2072” and then “Reminder Meet Bo-Peep.” Finally, select “Download Coordinates.”
This completes the main part of the Lying Lowe quest.
Baa Baa Black Sheep
The next quest in Calvin’s questline is called Baa Baa Black Sheep. It starts by telling you to visit the coordinates you found on Calvin’s terminal. You’ll end up pretty high in the mountains, so look for elevation if you’re getting stuck.
Once you get here you’ll find some Crime Scene Notes and Wolf’s Letter to Bo-Peep right by the wooden ramp. You’ll also find Bo-Peep’s note to Calvin on the floor in the surrounding area in a sleeping bag.
You’ll know you’ve found all the lore you need when the quest updates to “Investigate Sal’s Grinders.” That’s located here on the map.
To get there, go to Beckley, pass some barriers and look for this white door in the corner of the area. You’ll know you’re in the right place when the quest adds an optional step to “find traces of the Wolf.” You’ll find a Holotape called Wolf’s Message to Bo-Peep” under an upside down table. That’s the first clue.
Your second clue is this note on top of the cigarette machine in the corridor.
To get the third clue, go up the stairs and you’ll see a wall-mounted terminal. Ignore that and instead go straight ahead into this room. Use Sal’s Personal Terminal that sits on his desk. Select “HQ RELAY BRAVO” then “Check in #63” and “View Reply.” Finally, select “Download Coordinates.”
After that, Baa Baa Black Sheep is complete.
Once you finish that quest, the Lowe Down quest will update with a prompt to “investigate the fate of two missing police officers.” Head to Lewisburg to find the patrol car.
This is what the car looks like. It will be marked even when you walk past it. Grab the holotape inside, and the mission will update to “search near the house with a flamingo out front.” It’s just a few feet away with the busted fence.
Go behind the house, and you’ll find a holotape and note on the body. You’ll also find Wolf Check-in #64 in the cooler nearby. The quest will update to “find the ID cache and further instructions.”
Look for the building in the center of town with these voting signs.
Use the catwalk to get to the roof, and you’ll find a small shack. Grab the Spare Operative Keycard and Further Instructions from this leather bag.
Now, head back to Taxidermy to discover the secret of Van Lowe’s basement. You’ll find this note from mom next to the laundry machine. Interact with the Laundry Day Calendar above to open the secret room.
Find the first optional clue in this Steamer trunk. Use the Assembly Platform terminal to progress the quest. Select “Behavioral Reprogramming Sessions” then “Session 4” and “Retrieve the Log.” You’ll get a new Behavioral Reprogramming holotape. The quest will update to tell you to search the terminal for wolf’s location. Select “Status reports” and “Emergency Check-In.” Lastly, press the button to download coordinates.
This part of the Lowe Down quest is complete.
Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing
This segment of the quest takes you to the Garrahan Estate. Head through this doorway.
You’ll find a note inside that directs you toward a card you need to activate the elevator.
As you can see, it’s at the Ming Headquarters.
Go through the main building till you reach this room. The card is on the desk.
Go back to the estate and take the elevator to the third floor. At the very top of the building you’ll find this terminal. Select the emergency check-in, and the quest will update to find and recover Wolf’s cache.
The cache is closeby in this car.
Encounter the Sheepsquatch
To find the Sheepsquatch, go to the Pylon Ambush Site and interact with the Byshe Robotics Terminal found inside this cabin.
Select “Initiate Assaultron Recall.” Note that the event won’t trigger if you’re not in a party.
What is the Recall Keycard Circuit Board?
The Recall Keycard Circuit Board, which is being sold by vendors for 1,8000 caps, offers a chance to trigger the event multiple times after you’ve finished it the first time. Your very first encounter will be free, however.
That’s all there is to know about the Lowe Down questline in Fallout 76.
Fallout 76 is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
